Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Took "George" to the range

#1 Post by Tommy Atkins » Sat Jul 13, 2019 8:37 pm

To (finally) zero the AGP folding sight.
Not too shabby!
Started out using the old factory sights to "bore sight", then switched to the AGP folding peep. About 4"right & close to zero for 100y elevation.
This was with S/A R1M3Z ammo.
A few tweaks then on to my own 180 gr SP loads. left<>right was fine but I was 8" high with the AGP #9G set to factory zero.
I'm satisfied with a a 10-roud slow fire 6 1/4" group @ 100yds using a 100year + old rifle, sights from the 1920's & a No1 Mk1* "calibrated eyeball" (trifocals) !

Cool set-up. That sight is cool--never ssaw one in the flesh--
I too would be very happy with that 10 shot group--10 shots separates the sheep from the goats!
